About the Workshop
Masterclass: ‘Virtual Project Management – How to Manage Projects Remotely’
In an ever-changing working world, we may now be finding ourselves transitioning back into the office, albeit on a part time basis, while also continuing to also work remotely and the emphasis is now focused on hybrid working and how to manage and participate in projects, both in the office and remotely, taking in account that your team may be now based in different locations.
This seminar is a must attend for anyone in the public sector who has to either manage or participate in a project, both onsite and in a virtual or remote environment and wants to become an expert in project management.
Often project management courses are pitched at too theoretical a level and do not teach students how to actually just ‘Do It’. Our trainers will demystify project management and show you the leadership and management skills required to deliver projects with confidence. In reality, most organisations implement a hybrid project management approach i.e. a mash-up of many popular project management methodologies. This project management seminar will give you the confidence to run great projects.
You will understand the role of the Project Manager, team building and managing teams virtually, gathering requirements (Scoping), the Project Management Office (PMO), risk management, how to handle the impact of change management and organisational development, project planning and project scheduling. You will also take away a project management toolkit which includes 8 essential templates, checklists and a technique which, when implemented will ensure that your projects will succeed!
This course is suitable for public servants that are likely to be involved in managing projects at some stage in their careers.
